What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that saves a website on your computer or mobile when you visit that website. In this way, the website remembers the pages that you visited and your preferences (such as user name, language, font and other preferences), so that you need not enter these again every time you visit the website.

Which cookies does Dirk Cousaert use and why?

Dirk Cousaert uses both functional and non-functional cookies.

Functional cookies

Functional cookies on the Dirk Cousaert website store user-selected preferences (e.g. language preference, type of device used to visit the website, etc.) and recognise users when they revisit the website. The benefit of functional cookies is that users need not re-enter their preferences every time, which means that it is easier to use the website.

You can remove these functional cookies in the browser settings.
